NOAA, Australian and Japanese Meteorological Agencies have issued El-Nino watch for the Pacific Ocean. Pak Government should gear up for any uncertain situation as deficient monsoon rain may worsen the persisting drought in Thar, leading to severe drought conditions extending upto south Punjab and adjoining Balochistan. El Nino (the boy) refers to the warming of the Pacific Ocean which usually causes the collapse of monsoon in the Indian sub-continent.


The two strongest El-Nino events of the last century included 1982–83 and 1997–98. Pakistan experienced it’s worst drought from 1997 till 2002. Recently an El-Nino was witnessed in 2009.
